    Auto Cross
    NY/CT has reserved the infield autocross track and skid pad at Lime Rock Park for the entire day on July 27[SUP]th[/SUP]! Whether you’ve never auto-crossed your Viper before or are an auto-cross expert you will enjoy this day. For first-timers this is a great opportunity to learn how to navigate your Viper on the auto cross track in a controlled, stress-free and fun environment. Ride along with experienced auto-crossers to learn the track and what your Viper can do on it. For auto-cross aficionados Lime Rock is providing a Scorer and will be timing the runs. We have unlimited use of the auto-cross to ourselves all day. Virtually unlimited runs. This is not a parking lot course with cones, this is Lime Rock’s actual auto-cross track:

    Skid Pad
    We have use of the Skid Pad (upper left corner of the above picture) all day. If you’ve never had the opportunity to pull some g’s in your Viper….the skid pad will be a fun new experience for you!!!

    Venom Cup Challenge
    In years past, the NY/CT region has had the honor of spanking [​IMG] the New Jersey region in auto-cross challenges (club rivalry) with the Venom Cup trophy at stake. This year, the NY/CT region has invited ANY and ALL VCA regions to join in on the fun. We are calling out the New Jersey, New England, Quebec, Pennsylvania & West Virginia, Virginia/Maryland clubs. Come join the challenge and see if your region has what it takes to take home the Venom Cup trophy and bragging rights. :D

    The Venom Cup Challenge will be held in the afternoon. Members from each region will have timed runs. The region with the best times, wins. More details on this to follow.

    Trophies, Food and Lots of Fun/Laughs
    In addition to the Venom Cup trophy, we will be handing out “Most Improved Driver”, “Slowest Driver” and “Slowest Club” trophies J and other various “acknowledgements”.

    The Lime Rock Snack Bar will be open for lunch (sold separately at the track). We encourage you to bring snacks and water.

    Fuel
    Fuel is available for purchase at the track but expensive. We recommend that you fill up at one of the local Lime Rock gas stations before entering the facility.

    Lime Rock Scenery
    Lime Rock Park is situated in a rural, breath-taking scenery. For those that wish to attend and check out the local scenery Lime Rock has lots to offer in sight-seeing. It’s worth attending for the beautiful scenery alone!
